Research: Enhancing the Quality of Patient Care

Successful medical research is a complex process requiring close collaboration of basic scientists, physicians, epidemiologists and data analysts, state-of-the-art instruments, resources to protect the interest of patients who volunteer to participate in clinical trials, and a strong commitment on the part of the Institution.

All of these elements are represented in the Maine Medical Center Research Institute. We have world-class researchers working on the most advanced biomedical problems. We have been successful in bringing the benefits of new discoveries to our patients and to the world, and we have an ongoing commitment to continue to be one of the very best biomedical research communities.

STEM Goes Red
Wednesday, December 5, 9:00 am – 1:30 pm.  MMCRI hosts the American Heart Association’s STEM Goes Red event.  Staff Scientist Dr. Lucy Liaw is one of the presenters. Approximately 50 female students from area highschools will participate in this interactive science event. STEM Goes Red’s goal is to close the gender gap in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields and to inspire students to become advocates for women’s heart and brain health – and to perhaps pursue careers in research and cardiology.

Open House 2018

Super microscopes, stained skeletons, and the vast biomedical research at MMCRI were among the topics for guests to learn about during the Research Institute’s Open House on October 23.  The event was a successful opporuntiy to share MMCRI’s work with community members, educators, and students.

Cardiometabolic Young Investigators Forum 2018:  Careers in Academia

This successful event was a unique opportunity for young investigators to engage with thought leaders in clinical and translational research. Thanks to all our attendees and keynote speakers: Dr. Sven Enerbäck, MD, PhD, Dr. Ron Margolis, PhD, NIDDK, Dr. Karen Freund MD MPH, and Dr, Clifford Rosen, MD, Center for Clinical & Translational Research at MMCRI.
